Ani Difranco — How Long Can It Last lyrics

Two years ago
Before you felt so familiar
Before I could remember your last name
I remember now
How our bright spring green deepened
With the years the seasons changed
And we were lush as the underside of August
The streets looked like water
They swelled and they shimmered
And they stretch like the sea
And dressed in my best shining skin
And my squiny eyes
I put the miles behind me

And it took us so long to get here
You gotta write between lines
You gotta read between the years
And fleetingly we see ourselves pass
Driving a good thing
And wondering how long can it last

How long can it last
How long can it last
How long can it last

And there was much to forgive
And there was much to forget
It seems we both stood by
While the record was set
And now when I look at you
And when you look at me
It's a much different view
We are both decked out in our history

And it took us so long to get here
You gotta write between the lines
And read between the years
And feetingly we see ourselves pass
Driving a good thing
And wondering, how long can it lost

How long can it last etc.
